Published November 28, 1963


National Archives description: "The original release sheet reads: PRESIDENT'S SLAYER SHOT IN DALLAS JAIL: Madness and hate erupt anew in Dallas as President Kennedy's accused assassin is shot down during a jail transfer. Here is the record as Lee Harvey Oswald walks his last mile. Two cameras record the moment as the murderer moves in. Forty-eight hours and seven minutes after the President's death, his accused slayer is dead.
THE WORLD MOURNS JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY 1917 - 1963 The final act in the tragedy of JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY, 35TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is one of the most memorable in history. Kings, Queens, Presidents, Premiers, Princes and Princesses, Emperors and Dictators - they come from the far corners of the earth to pay tribute to the man who had served the world while he served the nation. From the moment his casket is borne from the White House to lie in state at the Capitol it is a drama filled with high emotion. All through the night people file past the bier. Some standing in a 10-mile-long line for as long as 12 hours. To pray. To mourn. To weep. Then the cortege winds from the Capitol to Saint Matthew's Cathedral for a Pontifical Funeral Mass while Mrs. Kennedy walks for six long blocks behind the caisson drawn by six white horses. After the religious rites the cortege proceeds to the cemetery of Heroes -ARLINGTON -where the martyred President will rest. At the end of the solemn, heart-rending graveside honors, Mrs. Kennedy lights a flame that will burn forever in his memory. REST IN PEACE"
